Massachusetts drivers need to exercise caution and pay attention on any road they driver, but two lane roads can require an extra amount of vigilance. In the blink of an eye, a driver who is distracted or somehow impaired could cross into oncoming traffic and cause a serious or fatal car accident. Police are not yet sure what caused a driver in a recent crash to veer across the centerline.
Drunk drivers across the country continue to take the lives of innocent people, despite the plethora of information and proof that driving under the influence is dangerous. Recently, a pedestrian in Massachusetts was struck and killed in what police believe was a drunk driving accident. Witnesses indicate the pedestrian was in the crosswalk when he was hit. Police later located the vehicle and driver believed to be responsible.
Nearly everyone knows that driving after drinking is dangerous to the driver, his or her passengers and everyone around the impaired driver. The Massachusetts State Police spend a good deal of time enforcing the drinking and driving laws by taking drivers they suspect to be impaired off the state roads. Therefore, it may come as a surprise to some that a state trooper was recently arrested in connection with a suspected drunk driving accident on Route 114.
Massachusetts residents may have heard about a new study that found a link between education and recovery from a traumatic brain injury. Researchers say that the higher a victim's education level, the better the chance of a full recovery. According to their results, nearly 39 percent of the patients with traumatic brain injuries that fully recovered had a college degree.
